This is what I keep hearing from well connected folks in Houston: White will go wherever Kay Bailey Hutchison doesn’t. If she runs for governor, he runs for the Senate (in a special election to complete Hutchison’s term); if she stays in the Senate, he runs for governor. Makes sense to me. Two years is forever in politics, but at least as things stand today, I don’t think White could beat Hutchison (I’m assuming that she beats Perry, if he runs), but he would have a good shot at winning a Senate seat.
